Plastic bags are harmful to our environment and they kill animals. You may not care about animals, but animals are involved in our ecosystems and when they are gone, we are in trouble. I want people to understand that dolphins, sharks, whales, birds, fish, turtles, etc can inhale or eat plastic bags. This can suffocate them and cause diseases, and we eat what’s in the ocean.
A fee will get people to stop using them and therefore their careless acts of polluting will save not only our lives, but animals’ lives. It would save us money as well. That’s what really gets to people is money, selfish but true. I am hoping that this opens people’s eyes to how pollution in our environment can make us sick and cause us harm later on in the future.
